Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (Okecie International Airport), Warsaw, POLAND

Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (Port lotniczy im. Fryderyka Chopina Warszawa-Okęcie) is an airport located in Warsaw, Poland. It was formerly called Okecie International Airport.

Named after Poland's famous composer Frederic Chopin, it is the country's largest airport. The land was used for airplanes since 1910, while actual airport buildings were constructed in 1934.

The current two story Terminal One was constructed in 1992. The airport will add a second terminal to deal with rising traffic in 2005. The combined T1 and T2 will triple capacity and be open by spring 2006. There is also a small terminal reusing the airport's long empty 1970s arrival hall that just opened; it is located away from the main terminal. This terminal serves all budget airlines but Centralwings which shares its gates with parent company LOT. The terminal is considered temporary and plans are in place to move the flights into a new airport at Modlin, a former airforce base 20km north of Warsaw.
